2:11 pm
leaders have started to fleet but on the ground we found little evidence to back up those claims this used to be a territory controlled by the central government but the iraqi army fled this area the same day that the city of mosul was captured by isis millions of dollars of u.s. made equipment abandoned uniforms shed in haste. now this looks like a hat a breakout from the special forces iraqi special forces this is obviously a vest that they discarded left behind they dressed in civilian clothes ran away essentially abandoned their posts and that's how in part isis has been able to see it so much territory so quickly the fighting has displaced hundreds of thousands of iraqis that many are scarred by the two thousand and three invasion and describe a sense of deja vu with the current crisis again from two thousand and three it's

2:13 pm
to evacuate this area we're going to get out before things get intense we know that there was clashes last night and we don't we don't want to be here if that happens again it was apparent just how fluid a conflicts this was the front lines change daily and no matter what military gains each day he may bring if the iraqi civilians who lose as the war rages on to see catherine opar on t.v. kuku province iraq. coming up in the program still no place to hide find out how the n.s.a. tracks the internet users are going to great lengths to try to stay anonymous extremists and. israeli army is beefing up its forces on the girls a frontier to defend against palestinian cross border rockets elbow's the i.d.f. says two dozen projectiles were fired from the region on thursday because no casualties retaliatory israeli airstrikes on gaza though did injure more than ten

was united in their desire to bring back the boy's people around the world friends of israel and the jewish people rallied to ask to bring back the boys and the government did what it had to do to get them out also noted for the to find their whereabouts but also no definitive proof of who killed these three teenagers either or something not been made public. there is absolute definitive proof it's been made public the names of the perpetrators have been made public these are hamas activists from the braun we even hear them on the call that has been made to the police station proudly saying that they caught three teenagers we have all the mobile data everything has been made public i know that people want to deny it people do not want to recognize the brutality of such a crime but we need no i don't have any who disagree for
2:18 pm
a minute it's our renders crime but the question from this end is why arrest hundreds of people when you say you know you're only after a couple of men here. because we need to find them they are not operating alone we know from phone calls that they made that they were telling their operators that they brought three young boys we know they had help in burying the bodies so we know that they're part of a far wider organisation the father of the perpetrator even said that he would be proud if he son were indeed the murderer that gives you a sense of the support structure and the support ideology under which they are working so hard it is you need to arrest people in order to get the intelligence meantime i wonder who is responsible for the death of the palestinian boy.
2:19 pm
this is obviously a heinous and terrible crime that has been condemned in no uncertain words by the prime minister the israeli police is investigating intuited acted quickly to find the body to find the means and what was the motivation there's no doubt that right now emotions are raw there are extremists who are looking for the slightest excuse to explode the entire area and again the israeli government and the people of israel are urging calm are urging or you will be fine seems that certainly the moderate forces. absolutely there is no doubt that this will happen the police are there are on it and this is a clear demand from both the israeli and palestinian public to find the killers as well as to find the killers of the three boys who continue to hide and to have
2:20 pm
support for their hiding among their families among their organization among their supporters and they have an ideology that. that is something he said dr a final thought from you well we've got you on the line how difficult my what what future of the peace talks in just thirty seconds if you can for me push the time i'd like together from you i don't know if we can have peace in the grand sense we thought of it in ninety's where the arab world will truly respect the rights of the jewish people to self-determination in their midst but perhaps we can find ways to live calmly without violence next to each other we have a mutual interest in making sure that the brutality that we see today in the middle east does not enter our territory and it will former israeli public thank you for your time and we're going to international thank you for being with us as well we're heading to a short break more news for sure. i

well again it's never been easy to stay private online but one of the few ways is through using so-called anonymity networks such as tall edward snowden indeed used to send his revelations to newspapers last summer but it's now suggested that the n.s.a. is tracking all german users of toll branding them as extremists. peter all of these in berlin but these latest revelations. well it is quite alarming the people that are using this software this network doing so to avoid being tracked what
2:23 pm
they're doing online and now what has emerged is that the n.s.a. has the ability to track just who logs on to the servers now this comes after it emerged in a line of code from the the infamous x. keyscore system that's what the n.s.a. used in order to monitor what people are doing online now what this code revealed is that they have essentially a tap into two servers here in germany anybody that goes on there well they get put into a database and are labeled as extremists now it's estimated that tens of thousands of people will of hunt them selves on that database remember this is a network that was initially created to help. people in in countries where the internet is is repressed it was initially funded by the united states government may still provide some of the cash towards it the tour system itself seems to be remaining intact those that log on to it though can now be
2:24 pm
tracked and they can find out who you are it's big story this whole thing in germany right now isn't it it went all the way to angela merkel even her emotion being tapped the moment two foreign n.s.a. employees have been testifying before a german parliamentary committee what do you know about how that's going on what was said of the two former senior n.s.a. officers william binney and thomas drake mist of binny has just finished his testimony a very long testimony there indeed what he revealed is that yes the n.s.a. gave the technology to the germans that would allow concentrated surveillance c. doesn't know whether the germans implemented that though he said that it would be impossible for anybody to detect if they were. being snooped on online by the n.s.a. he also said that the united states and the n.s.a. needed to create a a moral standards
2:25 pm
a moral standard in what information they are snooping into said that current legislation just doesn't do that we're waiting to see what more comes out of this ongoing committee hearing to try and find out just the sheer scale and scope of the n.s.a. spying here in germany our correspondent in berlin it was edward snowden did he reveal how internet giants such as facebook you who google shared information on the users with the n.s.a. but some companies refused to cooperate with government requests and kept the customer's data private we talked to the owner of one such company but attempts to reform the agency. we've seen for the revelations that they're literally spying on every country that they can with the exception of for. in my opinion the n.s.a. as a grew up the agency if i as an individual had undertaken the same actions i would be thrown into prison for thirty years any attempt to reform in my opinion is like bailing out the ship that's already sunk there have been two attempts by the u.s.
2:26 pm
congress to try and defund the n.s.a. both which of failed my opinion is the u.s. congress is more interested in being paranoid and aggressive than taking care of americans need so i don't have a lot of optimism that much is going to change at all. the n.s.a. is destroyed and shut down completely bass surveillance is not covered by the fourth amendment of the constitution you have to have a specific warrant against a specific cause. and it does it's just not supported so it's encouraging to see the supreme court holding up the fourth amendment but we need to see a lot more cases come forward before the n.s.a. start to see any real impact on that. series. of killed at least two people a day. since the military coup that led to some of the country's worst bloodshed in decades ahead of the anniversary supporters of the former leadership called for a day of rage but today police took care of anyone attempting to protest against the general to president. of the two hundred people were arrested. it has got
2:27 pm
a long history of military leaders of course morsi is predecessor hosni mubarak was an air marshal he ruled the country for three decades after the country's arab spring mohamed morsy was then elected he wasn't a military man but the revolutions hopes of democracy were quickly dashed by that military coup so once again a former army chief is in charge this time fattah el-sisi so the revolution as we can see has gone a full circle all our news fingertips twenty four seven at r.t. dot com thanks for being with us after the break another behind the scenes look at how we deliver the news to you in the latest episode of news team. yes it's official the mainstream media must be made up of stereotypical gossipy
2:28 pm
teenage girls i mean how else can you explain the fact that michelle obama using the term chipped has become a scandal i don't white house summit on working families mrs obama explained that when she was working part time she realized she was getting chipped because she was actually king full time but only getting paid the part time salary technically the term gypped is somewhat racist and implies the gypsies are all con men but in the modern world i think most people don't even know where the term comes from i doubt michelle obama likes a medieval peasant shield her children from wandering gypsies who could give them the evil eye i seriously question that there is any deep racial intent in the statement i personally would let the first lady off the hook but the question is would she do the same for me or any other person in the media probably not but thankfully for mrs obama she can't be fired from being the first lady only divorced or her husband's term ends now for me and every other person saying their opinion on camera we've got to be a lot more careful but that's just my opinion. i. do
